Early Metrics is the leading ratings agency for start-ups and SMEs.

Major groups can in this way more easily distinguish the start-up that is going to become a true benchmark from one that is going to fall by the wayside in the space of a few months, by referring to the agency’s rating reports when deciding whether to enter into a relationship with a start-up.
